May the force be with you! This past Monday was May 4th, and for any fellow Star Wars fan, I’m sure you know May 4th is celebrated as Star Wars Day. Fans across the world joined together and shared the message – “May the Fourth be with You!” I don’t know about you, but during a time when we are facing a lot of challenges in the world, those six words seemed very comforting to me.
To celebrate May the Fourth, my boyfriend and I started our annual rewatching of my all time favorite movie universe. I wanted to add even more fun to our celebration and created some Star Wars decorations for our fireplace mantel.
I started with a basic banner that read “May the 4th be with You.” If you’d like to make this Star Wars banner yourself, you can grab the SVG file for your Brother Scan ‘N Cut, Cricut, or other cutting machine in the shop. Using my Brother Scan ‘N Cut saved a ton of time as I created this banner, since I didn’t have to cut any of the pieces out!
After I hung up the banner I knew I was missing something – BABY YODA.
I pulled out my trusty pom-pom maker and created the CUTEST Baby Yoda pom-poms, making this banner the centerpiece of my mantle!

We were all set when May 4th came around and started out the day with Death Star waffles for breakfast!
Then we hunkered down and started from Episode 4 (A New Hope), watching in the order of release.
For dinner we had a Baby Yoda specialty – chickie nuggies! Plus I made some Yoda Margaritas that were super yummy!

PS – I just rehung this DIY Baby Yoda Banner to celebrate the second season of the Mandalorian, coming to Disney+ October 30, 2020. We are so looking forward to watching The Child and Mando team up again to take on the galaxy.
